Twin screw vise #6: Both jaws on

12-09-2017 08:14 PM by Dave Polaschek | 4 comments »

Since last time, I finished drilling the 3/8” holes to mount the rear vise jaw to the bench. I bolted the jaw on, then put in the vise hardware with the front jaw to make sure everything lined up. The one departure from plan is that the 5” bolts supplied with the vise were long enough that I needed a little more wood behind the bench apron to hold the nuts. They’re designed to live inside the bench top, and I had initially planned to put a 2×4 behind the apron to...

Walnut & Curly Maple Coffee Table #9: Finish work complete, ready for delivery

12-09-2017 02:16 AM by Reinan | 2 comments »

I coated this piece in a couple coats of 1# dewaxed garnet shellac, but I should have thinned them further for the top because I had streaking of patches that were coated more heavily than others, so I did a wash coat of straight alcohol and leveled the shellac to even it out. It worked, but then I had to deal with runs all over the edges and drips on the bottom lip. Next time I try that on a light colored wood I will build up with a less colored shellac and add the darker as a top coat for...

Segmented Pyrography vessel #2 #1: The building process.

12-08-2017 07:32 PM by Julian | 8 comments »

This vessel is made from maple and macassar ebony. My goal was to make a square wave pattern with a tilt. This turned out to be more tricky than I realized but finally figured it out. The center of the vessel will be burned with a pattern I found in a Youtube video. The pattern is called Ududu by Ellen Wolters. First step is to draw out the design from which I will get all my measurements. The final result turned out a little different. The vessel was made in two parts and then glued t...

John Deere Beds

12-08-2017 07:17 PM by TJ24 | 1 comment »

We are currently looking for a John Deere Gator bed to give to our 6 year old son for Christmas. We found this web site through Pinterest. We really like the project found on Does anyone have one for sale or know of anyone that has one for sale? The frame we can get but we need to know the measurements (height, width for example). Our son really loves John Deere and this would be an awesome present.
